Do facultative symbionts affect fitness of pea aphids in the sexual generation?

Abstract:

Many aphids carry one or more facultative symbiotic bacteria which can provide a variety of fitness benefits for their hosts. They have chiefly been investigated in asexually reproducing aphids, with studies of the sexual generation limited to investigation of transmission rates and the potential for sex ratio manipulation. The effects of two facultative symbionts on the mating success of pea aphids, Acyrthosiphon pisum Harris (Hemiptera: Aphididae, Macrosiphini), were investigated in a no‐ch...
